How we generate your donations

During an #OhmHour, the electricity grid needs power. The grid can either turn on a dirty and expensive power plant or we can reduce our electricity usage. By turning off unused lights, appliances and unplugging batteries, we prevent a power plant from turning on.

The people who operate the grid would rather pay us to turn down instead of paying a dirty power plant to turn on. It's cheaper and produces less pollution.

OhmConnect manages your reductions with the grid operators in California to donate the proceeds.
